I've been stocking up on people food for emergency, just tool inventory. Enough soup for a month, lots of other items as well. People laugh at having a deep pantry, but it makes you prepped and easier to make food at home.

I have at least 3 months of canned food
in the pantry. I wait for sales and stock
up. Especially things like Progresso
soup, 19oz cans are a meal. You can get
them half price several times a year.
Dollar Tree is a great place for canned
meats and fish.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Mormons keep two years of food on hand.
Amish can their surplus.

Dollar tree can be dented, damaged or stale dated so be careful.

I don't have much room for a larder and never roll down the bag of catfood so it goes stale promptly.

It was good to get out of the house though... found out it was Monday.

Wow. Took one of those Doubleshot espresso thingies and spent two hours passed out on the floor ... got a kick like a Missouri Mule.

Wish I could handle making a real tonic such as:
Forest soda: Local raw forest honey, organic sugar, wild mint, yerba santa, mugwort, yarrow, juniper berries, white fir, Pinyon pine branch, fermented limes (2), fresh lemons (2), manzanita berries.
Wild yeast from local elderberries.

The trouble is that with advancing age there is so much memory loss that I overcharged by electric shaver and now that a replacement has finally arrived, I can't figure out how to insert the various attachements, so I certainly can't manage all these mugwort and lime ferments.
